On Saturday, March 12, two Montreat College distance runners, Lindsay Mizok and Jared Nielsen, competed in the Corporate Cup Half Marathon in Charlotte, NC. Nearly 900 runners participated in the half marathon event which has been held annually for 33 years. Mizok, a senior from Montreat, ran an incredible race, finishing first overall for the women. Crossing the finish line in 1:30:36, Mizok earned a personal best while qualifying for the marathon event at the NAIA National Championships for outdoor track and field.
The Cavalier Track & Field team competed again this weekend, making the short two-hour trip down to Clemson University. Eleven Cavalier athletes made the trip and represented Montreat well amongst a field made up primarily of Division I teams. "Overall, we had a pretty good meet," said Coach Herbert "Some good performances, some things we need to work on, but overall we competed very well. I'm very pleased with our progress so far."
